We focus on bringing good things together.
We’re a local restaurant, but we think big. We believe in breaking down barriers to connect the best things in life: diverse cuisines, different experiences and new friends. If that means throwing out the rulebook and doing things a bit differently, then that’s exactly what we do.
From having our chefs serve our food, to putting a bar on the street outside our restaurant.
If it works, it works.
Our 70-seater restaurant features a walk up outdoor bar, a chef’s counter downstairs and a large dining room on the ground floor. Expect Asian inspired food, cocktails and sake.

Great food. We dined there on a Tuesday and it was so good that we cancelled reservations at another restaurant to return on Friday. The satay pork and wagyu were excellent as was the shrimp tampura. The sea bass was perfectly cooked and marvelously spiced. My wife had the salmon--twice. It is that good. Add in the reasonable wine prices and great deserts and there is nothing to not like about Foley's.

Very interesting selection of tapas style oriental dishes. It works. And there was a credible number of vegan options on the menu.

The service was wonderful and food had good flavors but the menu was limited as we were told they had a delivery issue. Many items were not available which made the experience a bit disappointing. The food we did try was good. The pork was super fatty and made half of the skewers inedible which was unfortunate as there were only two. Would love to see it at it’s full potential.

Great food and really nice restaurant setting. The aubergine was delicious as was the pork skewer. Sadly 3 of the dishes which we would have ordered (including the udon noodles, chicken satay and wagyu skewers) were not available due to supplier issues which was a bit of a shame but was just bad luck. Generally good value. The only disappointment was the octopus which was the most expensive thing we ordered and was just a few tiny cubes of fairy chewy octopus. Would definitely go back.

Was a bit rocky start as we were approached by 5 different people, asking if we have a reservation but they seemed busy, so no harm there. Overall, everything was great! Food is honestly amazing. Waiters are incredibly great and friendly. Definitely will come back!

The food came out very sporadically and not in a good ‘it’s tapas’ kind of way. I think they forgot two orders, which happened to be the main dishes for me and a friend. Everything else had been eaten by the time they arrived - and after I had to chase. I was told that’s how the food comes I.e as and when (it came an hour after I ordered). I’d have much preferred the staff owned up, admitted there’d been a mistake and maybe offered a free pud or something to make up for it. They did nothing. I didn’t want to kick up a fuss but left dissatisfied and overcharged for poor service.

Great food, and friendly service when we got it, but we waited 40+ mins for our drinks, which arrived after the first food hit the table. I'd go again, but would aim to sit somewhere more visible than the corner in which they stuck us and forgot us.

The food was sublime, however the service really let the experience down. It wasn’t even that busy and it took so long for anything to be served. Drinks were forgotten about & we had to remind the waiter and waitress about our actual order. Slightly annoying.

We dined downstairs near the kitchen which was nice, however we sat so close to the kitchen the chilli being cooked made the whole restaurant cough from time to time. Also off putting. Wouldn’t go again any time soon.

The best food! Woke up the next day thinking about the aubergine. Only reason we gave slightly lower score for ambiance was that it was so quiet for saturday lunch. That can also be a good thing though!

Went for Valentine’s Day and had requested a table booking well in advance. We were sat at the hot and noisy kitchen counter next to other people so we left. It was bright neon light and so unromantic. So disappointing and I’d been really looking forward to trying it but it’s clear they were just trying to cram in as many people as possible that night

I was looking for an interesting, different place in the W1 Area for dinner with two friends from New York. I knew that both would enjoy Asian food, but ideally wanted it to be very different from the traditional restaurant. I know London restaurants fairly well, but just couldn’t think of somewhere suitable.
However a quick search here on OpenTable, with our hotel location in mind, pointed me to Foleys restaurant, and it was a great success. The wine list is unusual and reasonably priced, the cocktails are very imaginative; and the dishes on offer our select but highly original and excellently executed. Really, a hidden gem.

I used to love foleys, and having not been for a year or so, I was excited to introduce it to some friends. Previously I felt very looked after, but the restaurant loooked a bit of a mess when we walked in, and the service was very average. A shame as would have recommended to friends in the past as a place to come for a birthday or special occasion. Now I would not.

We take a very negative view of restaurants where the tip is not given to staff but used to pay their salary. We thought this appalling practice was history. For this reason, we will not return nor recommend, though the food was good, the ambiance pleasant and the service excellent. The ethics so dreadful to ruin the experience!
